Are they or aren’t they? For months rumors of Beyonce and Jay Z’s divorce have been swirling like a Mo’ne Davis curve ball. The gap between reality and fiction can be at its widest when someone is on one of the biggest stages in the world, but if Beyonce meant what she sang at the VMA’s Sunday night then the first couple of music are passionately addressing their issues.

Beyonce’s performance was the main event of the night. She closed out the VMA’s with a 16-minute medley of her newest album, Beyonce. Nearly every line of the performance could be interpreted as some kind of message to her antagonized man who sat watching from only a few yards away.

Beyonce opened with Mine. The turmoil around Jay and Bey added a whole other level of meaning to the lyrics, “Been having conversations about breakups and separations… are we even going to make it?” In Jealous she sings, “I hate you for your lies and your covers.” The performance seemed to make a turn later in the song when Beyonce sang, “If you’re keeping your promise, then I’m keeping mine.”

Queen Bey took it up another notch after the voice and words of Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adlchle rang out over the airwaves. She said, ““Feminist: the person who believes in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes.” Her performance was a passionate seizure of that equality.

Her final song, XO, was dedicated to her fans. But the preceding song, Blue, seemed to be sent directly to one person in the audience. “It can last forever. Come on baby won’t you hold on me forever.” Later Jay Z came out holding their daughter Blue Ivy to present Bey with the Video Vanguard Award.

After the performance host Chelsea Handler didn’t even come back on to say goodbye. She didn’t need to. In this world Queen Bey gets the last word, as it should be now and forever.
